Just Us girls #311-Color Challenge Week!

Hi! It's still warm in Western New York, but this is the last weekend of summer! Autumn is official on September 23 (or is it 22nd?)  Anyway, Maria has an autumnal color challenge for us this week! She wants us to use RED, YELLOW and ORANGE on our projects!  Great challenge, Maria!
Here are my cards!  I have an August birthday and I have NEVER been SO late with my thank you notes!  Because of that I've made 15 variations on this first card so that I can get them written and sent soon!  I'm showing you three of my cards, so I hope you like!
 First up, I used Paper Smooches "Best Buds" stamp set , stamped on water color paper and colored with clean color real brush zig pens and water on a regular paint brush.  This one got a little dirty when I used a stencil brush on the edges with soft suede and got to much in an area. I had to 'dirty' up the rest in an effort to hide my error! I used a black sharpie for the ziggy lines around and also used lots of stickles for sparkle and shine!  The 'thanks' die cut is from Your Next Die. A perfect fit!
Same card, different photo-see the sparkle?
 And, two different cards with an altered placement of the focal image.

We sure hope you'll join the JUGS team in the challenge this week!  LOTS of DT inspiration can be see HERE!  Link your card or project to the site by 9 pm ET on Thursday, Sept. 24!  You may also have a chance to be our Guest DT member for November!
Thanks for coming by today!

I love these pretty canning jar bouquets, Cheryl. :) I like the ziggy lines and the sparkle. A very sweet card.
